Recycling and Engels Industrial Compound
Engels supplies many hundreds of thousands of plastic bins every year. Where do these products stay when their life-cycle ends or if they are damaged? The simple answer is: These bins are completely being recycled!
Engels takes back the used plastic bins, pallets and pallet boxes. The products are, if they can no longer be used, shredded. After shredding, the material is processed into granulate in a compounder. This "new" granulate, made from existing plastic, has properties that are generally comparable to new material.
The material is tested and documented, so that the former plastic trays can be reused again in another application after this "rejuvenation treatment".
We call this alternative for new / virgin material Engels Industrial Compound. As a result, the circle is complete and valuable raw materials can be re-used again and again.
Products made from this recycled plastic can be recognized by the green marking below.
